Hacker's Delight by Henry S. Warren, Jr., is a book published by Addison-Wesley Professional on 17 July 2002.[1] It discusses a variety of programming algorithms for common tasks involving integer types, often with the aim of performing the minimum number of operations or replacing slow operations by faster ones (e.g., converting a divide by a constant into a multiply by another constant that gives the same result).

The second edition was released in 2013.[2] It had new chapters on cyclic redundancy code and other error correcting codes. It also had a new appendix containing graphs of discrete functions.
